Britvic’s energy drink brand, Rockstar, is launching two of its top performing flavours, Juiced El-Mango and Tropical Punch, in a price-marked pack format. Designed to further drive impulse purchases and bring new shoppers into the category, the £1.29 price-marked pack cans will be available in wholesale and convenience from early August.
Stimulant energy is the largest category in impulse, with stimulant shoppers spending 92% more than soft drink shoppers in out of home on average. Price-marked packs remain key for the convenience market, giving shoppers price reassurance and a greater perception of value for money – 66.9% of sales in this channel now go through as price-marked pack, an increase from 66.0% in 2021. Rockstar already offers great value to shoppers with its extensive range of flavours in price-marked pack format and Juiced El-Mango and Tropical Punch are set to drive excitement and interest by adding to the range.
With High, Fat, Salt, Sugar (HFSS) legislation on the horizon, Rockstar recently announced a reduction in the sugar content across its range of energy drinks to be fully HFSS compliant, including Juiced El-Mango and Tropical Punch. Rockstar is making itself even more reliable and steadfast for retailers who will be able to continue growing energy drink sales through high-impact merchandising and promotions even once the legislation comes into effect.
Ben Parker, Retail Commercial Director at Britvic, comments: “Nine out of 10 shoppers say taste is the most important consideration when buying a soft drink, so flavours, in particular, are important for piquing shoppers’ interest and generating excitement in the category. As a trusted and recognisable brand, the Rockstar range comes in a variety of great-tasting flavours, and also offers the functional benefits needed for consumers to keep their energy levels up. The addition of Juiced El-Mango and Tropical Punch in a price-marked pack format will offer shoppers price reassurance and a greater perception of value for money”.
Rockstar Juiced El-Mango and Tropical Punch price-marked pack (£1.29) will be available in wholesale and convenience from early August. The rollout of the range will be supported by in-depot activations, retailer point of sale and field support.
